Prince's is a fabulous course and up with the best links in the country. Off the back tees the course is very long (now 7275 yds of the championship tees) and with the heavy rough it becomes brutal in any kind of wind. In my opinion it's a tougher test than neighbouring St. George's and Deal (as often reflected by the scores on tournaments co-hosted between the clubs). The greens are usually excellent, although the fairways can be a little scrappy in places. With a little tidying up and a few minor tweaks, Prince's would be well worthy of hosting The Open again.
